“We are 5 days away from Fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” “Change is coming to America.” “The Constitution is a document of negative liberties; what the government can’t do to Americans, but it never goes into what the government should do on behalf of Americans.” “I will not have special interest groups in my administration.” Anyone with honesty will have to say “you lie!” Mr. President. If we Americans compare what our President actually says compared to what he does, can there be a better definition than fascist? I wish to define a word, Fascism;“A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass_based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.” [Robert O. Paxton, “The Anatomy of Fascism,” 2004]
However there is something good that has come as a result of this President. I know that many of you will read this only because you think I will join in the Obama bashing club! Some of you may think that I have lost my mind and have drank the Progressive and Marxist cool aid! How many of you have found yourself praying more diligently for America? How many Americans do you know that are actually waking up from their slumber? How many do you know that used to never vote for or against anyone but now see that instead of complaining about policies from politicians they are actively voting for people who reflect their own principles and values? Our Nation has become Morally bankrupt. Largely because people look to men to solve their problems instead of God. As a result of a Nation of baby killers and Sodomites, we may be seeing God use Fascism to humble Americans who never get involved in our leaders who set themselves up as god. Idolatry is run amuck in our Nation and God wants us to repent! Compare Israel of the past with America of today. (2Chronicles 36 and Daniel 1) God in a nutshell sent Israel into captivity because of their idolatry and evil leaders. Israel did repent after the discipline of the Lord their God, but only after 70 years in Babylon. Maybe just maybe America is better than Israel. Is this your thinking? Think again! It is my sincere prayer that God’s people in this country will say thank you God for Obama, we have seen the errors of our ways and are repenting of our political Idolatry! May all who call themselves Christian take the attitude of Daniel. Listen to our Bible; “1Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone–
2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men– the testimony given in its proper time. 7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle– I am telling the truth, I am not lying– and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.
8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
I know this is an opinion of the Bible and it is hard to obey. But I am convinced that God is in control of our destiny!!!

Love the sinner, hate the sin, is not found in the Holy Text of the Bible! However the principle is most assuredly forth right. “1John 3:6-9 No one who lives in him (Jesus) keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him. Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.” If we who follow Jesus in thought, word and deed, we must despise and reject everything that is sinful and evil! At the same time we are to love the person who is sinful. As the Holy text has just said the Son of God has appeared to destroy the devil’s work, which is everything that is evil! Everyone has sinned. Everyone has the stain of sin in their lives. Everyone has a need for Redemption and forgiveness of sins. That is why Jesus came and died on the Cross. If Jesus loved men and their sins, then why did He have to die? Jesus love’s those who committed sin but died to Atone for them to wash away their sin, that men may be declared righteous in God’s eye! A lady recently argued with me concerning the statement, “love the sinner but hate the sin.” She says Christians are taught to hate. Homosexuals, drunks, liar’s, blasphemers…are all to be hated by Christians. She was somewhat confused about this concept so I explained it this way; If you love someone and they told you a lie, do you love that lie they told? No. But you still love the person, don’t you? Yes she said. So it is with our Creator! He loves all whom He Created but hates the sin and therefore sent His only Begotten Son, Jesus, to die to pay the debt for our sins. Love the sinner but hate the sin is indeed the message of Christianity! A quote from an old time preacher “I have no hope beneath the canopy of heaven, neither in time nor in eternity, save only in this belief-that Jesus Christ, in my place, bore both my punishment and sin. There may be some sins of which a man cannot speak, but there is no sin which the blood of Christ cannot wash away.” -Spurgeon

I am not and will not give a long speech on how it is more blessed to give than receive. I am not going to try and guilt you into giving money. Neither is Christ honoring. I will simply give you an opportunity and avenue to help where you can.

We have 3 churches in Haiti and they could use whatever help the Lord places on your heart! The Pastor would be able to purchase supplies at Cap Haitian for families in need.

The first thing I want to share before going on to answer this question is; God’s Word says what it says and we sinful men must take His Word, by faith, to say what it says without adding to it or taking anything away from it.  We can and must not go beyond what His Word has Revealed! I will share verses that indicate another realm beyond the physical.  We as sinful men love to dwell upon things such as UFO’s, intelligence on other Planets, Angels, Demons(fallen angels), Ghost’s and so on and so forth.  Many have seen and have based their entire lives on the UFO sightings.  I must tell you I personally know for a fact that there is realm beyond the physical.  The whole entire Bible teaches us this fact.  We are physical beings as well as spiritual beings.  There are spiritual beings called Angels which are holy and there are spiritual beings called Demons which are evil.  God Himself is a Spirit for Jesus said John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”  There are Scripture’s that indicated that Angels, fallen and holy, who come into the physical realm from the spiritual realm and some men have seen them. Genesis 6:1-8 “When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days– and also afterward– when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth– men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air– for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.”  Ancient text and many Bible scholars have for thousands of years indicated that holy Angels came to Earth to teach righteousness to men and became corrupt.  They took women of men and had children.  Their children became giants and where wicked.  The study of this can be traced to Goliath the giant, the one whom king David slew.  Fallen Angels who were cast out of Heaven because of rebellion led by Satan, can and always will bring confusion and delusions to men.  They will always try to get people to worship them rather than the only true God.  1Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.  As we see the day of Jesus Second Coming we will continue to see spirits appear in the physical realm so men will follow them.  Also a good story to indicate the possibility of UFO’s.  2Kings 6:8- Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.” The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Will you not tell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?” “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city. When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  As indicated in this story Angelic beings were hidden from men’s eyes, then the LORD opened their eyes and they saw what people today would call Aliens or UFO’s.  Do Aliens exist? Yes! Are they from other Planets? Doubtful.  Are UFO’s and Aliens as we like to call them, fallen Angels enticing men to worship them? Absolutely!  Be careful when you see things and hear things that are “out of this world.”  It just may be an Angel or (demon) from a different realm.  Last few verses which point to the true Aliens, Believers.
1. Ephesians 2:18-20 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
2. Hebrews 11:13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.
3. 1Peter 2:9-12 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.  Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
